Here’s to the true spirited

The people who are different, the ones that go the opposite way to the crowds, the heretics, the ones brave enough to be vulnerable and speak their truth from their soul without fear of others are nearly always dismissed and in some cases persecuted and in extremes killed by the ‘mob’.

However, it is better to be brave enough to be vulnerable, to be lambasted ,to walk in the wilderness on a lonely path, and even to be hated by all, rather than to live a life fearing others judgement and suffering not being our true selves. People fear the egotistical calamity of actually having to admit their shame and being wrong, so they override their true essence to save face.

Here’s to the rebel, the heretics, the crazy ones, the brave and true spirited. Keep being true to yourself.

Alone

Altogether, cosy.

Safe in the circle.

Among the crowd.

Following the trend.

Fitting in.

Belonging, we think.

Belonging to the crowd.

Not true belonging.

True belonging is in the wilderness.

Alone…from the crowd.

But where we truly are…

Truly ourselves.

The bravest place is true belonging.

Step into the wilds.

It’s where we all belong.



Inspiration behind this comes from my number one favourite author Brene Brown and her last book ‘Braving The Wilderness’.
